Schawee videoed himself catching this gator bare handed. Pretty impressive my friend!

I'm impressed, but I can tell you I'd have to be too drunk to fish to even think about it.
be happy and make others happy.

Aww shoot that ain't nuthin'!!!  Now if he tried to catch it by using his hand as bait, like those catfish noodlers do, now THAT would be impressive!!

Just kidding...that is awesome!  How big is that one?  2-3 feet?  I don't think that I'm going to show this one to my boys, just in case we're in 'gator country again....they would try it.... :roll:

Impressive.    I hope you didn't use one of your tags on him.    Maybe bring him home and keep him in the bath tub for a while?

How much do you think that 13 footer from South Carolina cost to have him mounted?

I thought about putting in for a gator tag here in Georgia, but I don't know what I would do with one.   And the permit tuns 50 bucks and I would have to do some driving to the south to get one.

Come on down Allen...got a couple of big ones in the lake right now. Folks around here don't take kindly to the big ones being in the swimmin' hole so they usually don't last long :)

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

We normally get 4 footers in the lakes up here, but they don't last very long.   DNR takes them back to south Georgia or they get poached.   Of course somebody let them loose in the lake to start with.   And the news people make more of it than it is.  When the 4 year old gets a little older, I might take him. (Momma said she did not care, if you can believe that.)
